    I'm of the opinion that David Berman should, along with his so called modern poetry be consigned to the garbage can. Complete and utter trash.

    I am inspired by your poem that is titled Self-Portrait At 28, hence i am that kind of a person who is self-motivated. I also compose poems in my spare time, hence you can visit my website on the following address. Your correspondence will be highly appreciated.

    Have a nice day!

    Yours sincerely.

    Today one of David Berman's poems was sent me by PoemHunter. I just kept reading and reading, soaking up the discursive swag-bag of ideas... making a story, which intrigued and transfixed me. I wish I had written down the title. I loved the work. Thank you. It is for poems like this that I live and breathe.

Self-Portrait At 28

I know it's a bad title
but I'm giving it to myself as a gift
on a day nearly canceled by sunlight
when the entire hill is approaching
the ideal of Virginia
brochured with goldenrod and loblolly
and I think "at least I have not woken up
with a bloody knife in my hand"
by then having absently wandered
